After the world's first AI synthesis female anchor "new Xiaomeng" officially took up her post, "intelligent +" appeared in the premier's report for the first time, and intelligent elements frequently appeared in the two sessions this year.
The premier's report clearly pointed out that it will continue to promote the transformation and upgrading of traditional industries, promote the integrated development of advanced manufacturing industry and modern service industry, accelerate the construction of a manufacturing power, build an industrial Internet platform, expand "intelligence +", and empower the transformation and upgrading of manufacturing industry. As a key traditional manufacturing industry, home appliances industry will accelerate the optimization, transformation and upgrading under the intelligent + enabling.
Li Jinbo, deputy to the National People's Congress and director of Midea home air conditioning innovation center, as a professor level senior engineer, has won the second prize of national science and technology progress award, China Patent Excellence Award, National Engineering Science and technology outstanding contributor outstanding engineer encouragement award, United Nations montelil agreement 30 years outstanding contribution individual award and many other awards. In his nearly 20 years of work in Chinese manufacturing enterprises In his experience, he deeply felt the rapid development of China's industry in the past few decades, and always paid attention to and thought about the future transformation of China's industry. This year, he brought six proposals to the "two sessions", focusing on the important proposition of China's industrial transformation and upgrading, focusing on industrial Internet, patent innovation, smart home, intellectual property and other aspects.
"Industry is the largest industry in China and the foundation of China's modernization. Combined with my personal thinking and Midea's leading experience in manufacturing transformation and upgrading in the past decades, I am honored to be able to offer suggestions and suggestions on China's industrial development and transformation at the two sessions." Li Jinbo said.
Since the traditional manufacturing industry gradually gets rid of the advantages of "low cost, large-scale", innovation and improvement of structure, science and technology driven development have become the only way for manufacturing enterprises, especially in the macro environment such as the decline of population dividend, the rise of operating costs, etc., it is particularly urgent to build a sound ecological transformation and upgrading for manufacturing industry.
As a successful model of transformation and upgrading of traditional manufacturing industry, Midea has first-hand practical experience in deepening intelligent transformation by using industrial Internet. Last year, Midea integrated the software, robot and automation, intelligent logistics, IOT and other fields of layout, built Midea's industrial Internet platform m.iot, and became the first independent industrial Internet platform provider in China with the trinity of "manufacturing industry knowledge, software and hardware". Combined with his own thinking on industrial transformation and upgrading and his practical achievements in the United States, Li Jinbo, in his proposal on accelerating the construction of industrial Internet, actively suggested that the state should accelerate the construction of industrial Internet, especially accelerate the implementation of basic and standard work, including the formulation of industrial equipment online standards, the promotion of IPv6, the practical reduction of network bandwidth costs, and the production of existing industrial equipment 3C certification is carried out for product models, so as to rapidly promote the direct interaction between industrial enterprises and consumers, form China's industrial Internet Ecology, and help China's industry realize leapfrog development.
Li Jinbo said that scientific and technological innovation is a strong driving force for China's economic and social development and industrial transformation and upgrading. However, the construction of China's scientific and technological innovation system is not perfect, and the innovation subject status of enterprises has not been formed. Therefore, the proposal suggests that the state strengthen the establishment of the transformation mechanism of technological innovation achievements, improve the laws and regulations of technological transaction, establish the technology transaction platform recognized by the state, train the talents of technological transaction, integrate the power of scientific researchers, enterprises and financial capital, and promote the technological innovation Fruit transformation.
Around the Internet of things, Li Jinbo's proposal is "suggestions on promoting the national standards of the Internet of things for smart home and encouraging enterprises to actively participate in the development of international standards". In the field of smart home, China's market scale continues to expand, and it is urgent to unify the national standards of the Internet of things. It is suggested that the state promote the formulation and implementation of national standards in the field of Smart Home Internet of things as soon as possible, and increase support for Chinese enterprises to actively participate in the formulation of international standards for smart home and Internet of things.
In addition, he also mentioned that in view of the weak ability of Chinese enterprises to use intellectual property rights and the increased risk of intellectual property rights in overseas markets, he proposed to improve the patent application and protection ability of innovation subjects, establish a unified mechanism and organization for overseas rights protection of Chinese enterprises at a higher level, and strengthen the cultivation of intellectual property talents.
Leading and deepening innovation and reform of manufacturing industry
Among Li Jinbo's suggestions, it not only highlights Midea's industry responsibility as a leading enterprise in the home industry, but also restores Midea's achievements in the integration of innovation technology and manufacturing upgrading in recent years.
Midea Group has constructed four dimensions for innovation, which provide long-term driving force with technological innovation, guarantee long-term vitality with system innovation, expand industrial territory with business innovation, and occupy market highland with product innovation. In the past five years, the United States has invested nearly 30 billion yuan in R & D, and has set up 20 research centers in 9 countries, including China. At the same time, in order to continue to support scientific and technological innovation and strengthen the ability of independent innovation, in recent years, Midea has continued to introduce top-notch scientific and technological talents and optimize its talent structure. As of 2018, the group has more than 10000 R & D personnel, accounting for more than 50% of the management personnel. The total number of domestic patent applications is nearly 90000, ranking first in the global household appliance industry.
At the same time, Midea also signed technical cooperation agreements with top scientific research institutions at home and abroad, such as Tsinghua University, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Massachusetts Institute of technology, Stanford University, University of California, Berkeley, etc., to establish in-depth technical cooperation in joint laboratories and build a global innovation ecosystem, which is in line with the "strengthening key core technology research, improving the enterprise based integrated innovation mechanism of production, learning and research" proposed by the two sessions System, expand international innovation cooperation "coincides.
In the 2017 Fortune Global 500 ranking, Midea Group ranked No. 450 with us $24.06 billion in operating revenue and US $2.2 billion in net profit, once again becoming the only Chinese home appliance enterprise on the list. From 2011 to 2016, Midea Group's revenue increased by 19%, net profit increased by 137%, and per capita efficiency increased by 100%. The transformation and upgrading of China's manufacturing industry provides a reference path.
Fang Hongbo pointed out at the 2019 Midea Group operation and management annual meeting that "only innovation can be inherited", and the innovation ability determines the future core competitiveness of Midea. At present, big data, artificial intelligence, industrial Internet, Internet of things, etc. have become national strategies. The home appliance industry represented by Midea will seek new growth momentum through continuous innovation, seize the first opportunity in the era of intelligence + to To drive the industrial upgrading of China.
